    Life Contentment Tips For The Millennial and For Parents

    A mom friend shared a note in Facebook, a life contentment tips list. That list has inspired me. I ended up picking a few from the list she shared and added a few of my own and came up with this contentment tips. Some may say that they have read that from somewhere already, that is great then. Here is another reminder. This may also serve as a short list of life hacks that the millennial babies and young parents can consider. Ensure your kids attend a good, affordable school (expensive schools doesn’t guarantee good results). Have time and give your kids good training at home. Rent apartments you can…

    The LIFE That You Want

        We all go through a phase in life where you are wanting something you cannot really name or have a hard time determining what. Then you hear and read words that are not really in the encouragement category and may not really be pointed or thrown at you but affects you so much and breaks your heart a lot more. That confusing feeling that somehow stresses you out because it keeps bothering you day and night. Then this confusion causes depression and then makes you feel that you have become a little crazy that you find yourself crying over the littlest of things. Well, we all are, crazy. At…

    5 Day Gratitude Challenge

    I was tagged by a dear friend, Joy of  JoyRide and so I decided to create a 2-in-1 post at first. To not lose the momentum, I guess.

We got the chance to go out together as partners, it was quite an adventure. – the simple fact that my kids’ have the ability to take care of each other while Mom & Dad is out. Sept. 15. I am grateful for… – an additional rest day…

    To the right path…

    I was browsing through new posts from my Instagram account, and then I saw three consecutive posts from Kristine Hermosa Sotto (@khsotto ). I was inspired, really. So inspired I made this (quoted from her posts).  I found out from the photo comments the posts were from All Devotion Bible application. Inspiring message from Psalm 25:5.

    Feast of The Divine Mercy

    Today, I got up a little late for the Sunday mass on TV. Still, I decided to start my day with the mass. I missed about 80% of the mass but really learned something great. There, I found out that today is The Divine Mercy Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter. When I was a still a kid, I remember that my Grandmother (who was then a member of The Catholic Women’s League) would always encourage me and my cousins to come with her to church and attend the mass and even join processions. Now, I have realized that the procession that happens every Sunday after Easter is for the…

    The Beautiful Cup

    We all have complaints every now and then. But then, there are moments you realize it on your own (or with a help of a loved one or a friend) that good things always outweigh the bad. That is when we realize that blessings are all over us, in different forms and sizes, senses and uses. And just like cups, we have to let the beauty of these blessings come out. So, we can share and be a blessing to another. And at the end of the day, everything just proves that GOD is so amazing!       *Photo from Pinterest

    Saying I’m Sorry

    I have recently found a TV show for kids – Sheriff Callie’s Wild West! The very first episode we have watched (Roey and I) has this song entitled “Saying I’m Sorry!” And it has become part of Roey’s favorite songs list from then on. Both my kids love to sing and that particular song is something any Mom will recommend. It is not just so easy to sing, it is also meaningful. Meaningful in the sense that it teaches the importance of saying “I’m Sorry”. Educating my kids with good manners and values is on top of my parenting priorities. I am not alone in this for sure. Here’s the lyrics…

    Everyday is a blessing!

    No matter how yesterday was, everyday is a blessing! Since we receive a blessing that moment we open our eyes each morning, it is but right to be thankful. I must admit, I have only fully accepted this fact when I became a Mom. It was a futile realization I must say. So, if stress has made me skip saying a prayer before bedtime, I have to say it upon waking up. The thank you prayer has to include that I was awakened, I was me as I was yesterday and have another chance to make myself better. This time, it is not just for myself but for my family,…

    5 things a simple SMILE can do

    You have heard that “Laughter is the best medicine!” but did you ever wonder why? You must have already found the answer from Google or from a medical book maybe. Admittingly, since I have had dentures years back, I feel awkward when I smile. So, when I give a polite type of smile, I (most often than not) also let my eyes work – a wink, a smiling eyes or a quick raise of the eyebrows. But sometimes, I feel that I am not really giving it (smile and what it meant in whatever moment there is) 100%. I am haunted by that feeling for sometime, really! Especially when I…

    A Prayer

    A beautiful female actress, Denise Laurel, posted this prayer on her Instagram account and I cannot help but like it. Love it, actually! In fact, I copied the prayer and made a new layout for it using Photoshop. (Yes! I have Photoshop again, yay!) Okay, not layout, just a different background and font. =) Here, I am but glad to share the prayer in my blog too.   This prayer moved me. I wish someone would be “awaken” as well. I even think that this is another prayer you can actually say everyday. Hope this post made you smile and at least feel good.
